The town of Red Cloud, Webster

praise the travelling public speak only
in deservedly complimentary terms.

people are thriving, and proud of their

louder than any outside representa

is well supplied with stock of all kinds,

the manner in which the supposed set
tlement between the figurehead, Kne
vals. and the settlers upon those lands,
has been brought about the Bee says:
;V year ago Kneval would have
been glad to have taken $1.50 an acre
for his lands, now he is compromising
at $3.50, and the settlers are mortgag-
their farms to clear their original tiile.
It can readily be seen that there will be
a good deal more difficulty now in so
curing the attention of congress to the
claims of our farmers in southern Ne
It will be urged that if tho farmers
were able to settle with Mr.
there is no further need for congres
sional relief. Appropriating money to
prevent eviction, and voting it to help
farmers to pay mortgages, arc two very
different things in the eyes of congress.

Van vVyck, who ha9 steadily urged up
on the settlers to refuse all offers of
compromise, and to watt the course of
The Herald would suggest that
Cenercl Van Wyck while he is about
it, look into the manner in which these

settlers, and perhaps he can gain some
insight into the manner in which they
were settled, and recognize the hidden
land that has guided and shaped that
The Telegraph strike is ended : the
employees are again asking for em
ployment, and the great telegraph mo
nopoly is exultant that its millions of
wealth, and almost limitless power,
has triumphed over the weak and pen
niless employee who has had the temer
ity to break a lance with that power
ful master and antagonist, and the
prints are full of the boastful self con
gratulatory rejoicings of the victor.
From thi3 contest, however, reforms
n our system of telegraphy will
emerge ; and the country will in the
end be the gainer; and when this
comes to pass the penniless, defeated
operator will be the victor after all.
The strike may be ridiculed and the
strikers may be censured, as they have
been by a great majority of the press;
but the fact still Remains that the
Brotherhood or Union adopted the
only means at hand at their command
to achieve, redress, aud gain relief
first, by asking their employers for re
munerative and living wages, and sec
ond, whea that request was met with
contemptuous disregard, by quitting
the employment of the grasping mas
ter. From the smoke of this contest,
the country's attention has been direct
ed to several features of the telegraph
system of America which needs and
must have attentions chiefest among
which is the fact that the commercial
peace and prosperity of this continent
cannot be assured so long as our tele-
of information accessible, that the
State of Nebraska will this year exceed
j its crop of '82, by at least from 30 to
40 per cent, in corn, wheat, oats, and all
other crops. With Thayer and Nuck
olls counties we were especially pleased
and predict that at no distant day these
will be among the banner counties of
sounthern Nebraska, in point of popu
lation and wealth.
England will persist in the deporta
tion 01 ner lrisu subjects. The gov
ernment has introduced in Parliament

A meeting to further emigration, over
which Earl Shattsbury presided, th
Archbishop of Canterbury being also
present, resolved at London Friday that
200,000 persons should be sent to Cana
da and the colonies, the state to buy
them farms, taking a mortgage for se
curity. It is proposed to send 10,000
families to Canada next speing.
Canada is to have standing army of
1,250 men by enlarging her two field
batteries, forming three infantry com
panies, mounting a troop of cavalry
and increasing the mounted police of
the nftrthwest. Of 40,000 men sup
posed to compose the militia onefouith

Own, of Toronto, is the strongest battalion.
There really sacms to be a strong
probability of the appointment of a
Chinese policeman in Philadelphia. If
Sam Wah should be decorated with

Kearney would feel more than ever dis

of his family" and let the balmy breez
es of the Pacific fan his ample ears.

the postal system under the control of

the almost universally agreed remedy
for the existing danger. The next con
gress will have this problem before it,
and it is to be hoped a plan may be hit
upon which will do away with the

Another wonder has been discovered
about Lake Tahoe which is a petrified
pine forest fifty feet below the surface.
According to the Carson Appeal, the
moss clinging about the top of the trees
has formerly presented tho appearance
of an ordinal y elevation of the lake
bed, but the moss has now disappeared
disclosing the petrified forest with

fishermen recently drew up several
